"Engraving By Louis XIV In Roman, Around 1700"
Etching of Louis XIV, King of France. The king is shown standing with his left hand on his hip and holding a staff on the right, accompanied by another figure in classical armor holding a shield bearing the motto "Nec Pluribus Impar". To the left, two other figures in classical armor are shown standing, holding a series of plans of fortifications and geometric patterns. With tents to the right and with a view of the troops marching towards a town in the background, and with French worms on a stone below: Louis Qui Fait Trembler la Terre, And Never Shakes: Qui Se Fait Dread A Coups De Scimitar, And Is Admired By Force Of Bounties, Seemed Too To Love The Perils Of War, Not To Love A Little The Pleasures Of Peace This portrait represents the king in general Roman, dressed in classic armor and accompanied by three other characters. This is the final state of an re-engraved plaque which originally represented the king accompanied by a single page: first the plaque was modified to include two other figures in the composition, then finally to add many inscriptions. Mention Bottom right '' AParis at Limosin, rue de Greve '' Text at the bottom of the engraving: Ouy, Grand Roy, let us leave the sieges, the battles, that another go rhyming to overthrow the walls. And often in the footsteps walking without your consent. Cover yourself with blood, dust and fire. A Quoy bon, from a muse to animated carnage, Warm up your already too bright color. Let us enjoy the fruit of your blessings at leisure: And let us not be left with the sweetness of peace. French work around 1700 Dimensions: Total: 65x84 cm Avue: 52x70 cm
